IDE Icons in comercial tutorials/documentation

Hello Arduino Team and Community,

what is the preferred way to describe the functionality of the IDE Buttons in a commercially sold book? is it possible to use the Button Images for this? the images are eventually - as fare as i can tell from the Guide/Environment Page licensed under CC By Sa. with this its not possible to include these in an closed work.

i think its fine to just use a full IDE screen-shot and name the buttons with lines going to them.

please let me know what you think of this.

The button graphics are also part of the Arduino IDE: https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/blob/1.8.1/build/shared/lib/theme/buttons.svg

There might be some haziness about the licensing of the IDE but it does have a general GPL v2 license: https://github.com/arduino/Arduino/blob/master/license.txt

Whether any of that has relevance to your question I have no clue.

thanks pert for the links.

if they are really falling under the GPL v2 i see no way to use them in any kind of closed source documentation material.

i have pinged @cmaglie on github - he added the buttons svg file - so eventually he knows some details..

sunny greetings stefan
